Private tutor in Chicago, IL
Boston University - BA, Economics
I attended Boston University and later lived in Boston working as a First Aid/CPR instructor. In order to further my teaching abilities, I traveled to Israel, where I worked as an English teacher for elementary school students. The primary focus of this work was helping students improve their English skills, but I also helped many of them with mathematics. It was the best year of my life. I felt great satisfaction in improving the learning experiences of the students I worked with. As a tutor, my specialties are in Language and Mathematics. Specifically, I can help with elementary and middle school math, Algebra (levels 1-2), Pre-Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Reading, Phonics, and Hebrew. I also can assist students with Biology. I believe that education should and can be enjoyable. I strive to present the academic material while also having fun, and if I can manage that, my day is made. I also feel it's important to understand my students on a personal level, so I can take their lives into account in our sessions. Relating abstract academic concepts to real-world scenarios is always useful. It's also important to me to make sure my students feel completely safe and comfortable during our sessions, so they're able to express themselves without fear of judgement. I want my students to trust me, and I work to deserve the trust. Every student deserves to get the attention they require to make learning a fun aspect of life! I hope to provide that support.In my spare time, I enjoy acting, swimming, weightlifting, singing, and hiking.
